But Susan McBride is not selfish. She emailed me to offer a copy to one of you. So, here’s the deal. I’m running a contest over the weekend and the winner of a copy of The Cougar Club will be announced Monday. For each day you stop by and leave a comment, you’ll get one entry into the drawing.
On all three days, any comment will do. However for any of the three days, if you can tell a short Cougar Tale, you get a bonus entry. Your tale must include the word “cougar” and either “bride” or “McBride.” I’m not entering (I’m not THAT selfish), but here is a sample I wrote:
The cougar reclined in the crook of his ancient tree and used his teeth to dig small pearls and white beads from under his claws. He stared off into the distance, in the direction of the nearest village. Ordinarily, he didn’t like change, but the village had added its first restaurant. The cougar decided he liked that. People came and gaped at the golden arches, gathered ‘round the small tables and celebrated reunions, weddings, and harvests. They liked the good food. So did he. He pulled on a piece of lace stuck between his molars. The McBride had been delicious. Tomorrow would be the grand opening celebration with village leaders grinning and backslapping. The cougar licked his lips and looked forward to a McMayor.The contest is now open. Leave your comment. If you’re the winner, I’ll email you and ask for your address, which I will send to Susan and she, in turn, will send you a copy of The Cougar Club. Good luck!
